Real Machetes

The machete is basically a modern-day sword, featuring a long blade that is designed for cutting. At the Zombies Playground, we feel that it is this simple approach that makes the machete one of the finer zombie killing weapons on the market, which is why we offer a number of them in our Real Machetes category. Of course, the machete makes for an outstanding tool when clearing away brush or cutting down vegetation, but why, exactly, is it such a great anti-zombie weapon? For starters, the machete's longer length allows for a kill to be made from further away, while its longer blade makes cutting so much easier than, say, an axe with its much smaller edge. Of further benefit is the fact that machetes are easy to carry, easy to maintain, and easy to use, which are all things that a zombie-survivor would want in a weapon. We carry a variety of different machetes with varying blade styles and finishes, ranging from machetes with heavy, chopping blades to thinner, more nimble machetes that possess both reach and grace. Each and every one of our machetes is made for survival, which means that they're made from quality materials that are designed and tested to withstand the rigors of use (please note that every machete needs to be cared for and maintained, whether used against zombies, used against plants, or not used at all). Of course, the visceral aspect of the machete, getting in close and felling your foes with your own hands, is also rather appealing on some level. So the next time you feel that a zombie outbreak is imminent, make sure you have one of our Real Machetes close at-hand so that you can swiftly and efficiently deal with any zombie threats you might encounter.
